they still do not have. have. martha: a fox news alert to capitol hill. a classified briefing on benghazi is code you would -- scheduled to get underway right now. a members only meeting in the house with the country's top intelligence officer at the helm at that. a brand new hour in "america's newsroom." we're glad to the have you with us on this wednesday. i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. james clapper and officials from other agencies meeting with these law makers after increasing pressure out of congress for answers and nearly three months after the four americans were murdered. martha: we're joined by chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. she joins us live from capitol hill. what do we hope to learn today, catherine? >> reporter: good morning. last time we had a briefing on the hill for all the members of the house was the first week of september right after the attack or rather the second week of september and today we also expect all the major players including the nation's top intelligence officer, james clapper, the director of national intelligence, th
to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> does this mean we get susan rice back? i know, i know, it's a done deal. we are told that the president is picking john kerry to be secretary of state after hillary clinton. but if this was supposedly the reason that susan rice could not be considered for that job as well, this is out now, and it says in a fair world, we would get susan rice back in contention. this is the report of the independent accountability review board that was authorized by law as part of the response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the attack that killed a serving u.s. ambassador for the first time since the 1970s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in an armed assault by a militant group on a u.s. facility that was in an area known for its armed militant groups. the attack was concurrent with worldwide protests at u.s. facilities throughout the muslim world against a cartoonish anti-islam video that had been posted
be like if it was a republican administration. from "fast and furious" to benghazi and now this. and yet the mainstream media likes to say, move along, nothing to see here. gregg: now we have a similar scandal and the epa. what you say? >> a libertarian think tank is alleging that this woman had a phony e-mail address. there is also the fact that almost all public agencies, there is a public e-mail address and an internal e-mail addresses they can communicate with each other. since it is a secret or phony e-mail address, and environmental protester -- he doesn't want to be pro-pipeline, give the administration and all these issues -- he is alleging that this one person used a false e-mail address, a phony name, and did some things falsely under that name. >> let's have some evidence if that's true. >> okay, so if you find out that the epa officials is one example, there was a richard someone that was a fake name. so if that is true, wouldn't you think that there is something nefarious going on? whited lisa jackson resigned? >> you are making a global statement as well. we have benghazi a
on benghazi. >> you don't think she brought it on herself? >> no. >> mark? >> the bummest rap to my mind was the assumption or the allegations that the supreme court on obamacare was acting out of politics and not out of their understanding of the law. >> clarence? >> yeah. i have susan rice on the top of my list. but i'll add and say nate silver's liberal bias proved to be a mythcal because he was dead on correct in his prediction on his election. >> the bummest rap. the rap recited by bill clinton to a long of democratic convention delegations that the republican party is responsible for the global economic crisis. experts say the cause of the ongoing crisis is trade imbalances creited by then president clinton about 20 years ago when he granted china most favored trading status and when he then negotiated world trade organization membership for china. you got that? >> you're going too fast. i need to take notes, john. >> i will give is to you afterwards, pat. just have the check in the mail. fairest rap? >> lance armstrong is stripped of seven tour de france sometimes. deservedly so f
inouye tomorrow. that's going to take up a lot. there's the viewing today. you've got the benghazi hearings. time is running out on the calendar. so what i'm hearing is, go home for christmas and come back the day after, come back on the 26th. >> the plan b would, as a diversion, make sense if they were still talking. but they're not talking. and according to senior white house officials, they haven't talked since monday. now, in normal circumstances, maybe that works, but we actually are getting to the point where they need to strike a deal. >> especially conversation one on one. >> if they don't strike a deal in the next day or so, you can't write something this big by the end of the year. >> correct. andrea's right. >> they're going to have to start piecing this together. >> they'll go home for christmas, get an earful from people, and then come back and pass it quickly. >> and they do have stuff written. they've got pieces according to conrad and the other budget leaders in both houses, they've got -- >> conrad, speaking of conrad, he was sure they were going to have a deal. >>
criticism of president obama and susan rice over the september 11th attacks in bengha benghazi. they got a vote of confidence at a cabinet meeting this past week. >> susan rice is extraordinary. couldn't be prouder of the job she's done. >> she appears to be the top candidate to replace hillary clintons a secretary of state. but could gop opposition change that. joining me is adam shif who said it's unfair to go after rice for information given to her by the cia. so your take on her chance of being approved by the senate. is this worth it to the president? >> i think she would be an extraordinary secretary of state. he ought to go forward and nominate her. it wouldn't be a slam dunk, but she's a strong candidate and would be confirmed. and when you look at the criticism of her, it's so completely unjustified. no one is critiquing her job as ambassador where she organized the sanctions on iran. where she went after and depose moammar gadhafi. she's had a phenomenal record and the only criticism of her is she replied on talking points provided by the intelligence community. that seems to m
the benghazi issue? what changed the last weekend toward obama? >> certainly i think sandy changed things. it let the president be president. >> it changed the subject from benghazi. >> i would also say this race was more of a referendum in some way on mitt romney than it was the president, and that's unusual -- >> does your side -- i know you're a true believer, and i respect that. do you think -- i mean it. do you think they didn't really believe he believed? >> no, i don't think that was the problem. i think the bigger problem was two things. they never personally connected with him. they never felt this attachment, and they didn't see him as -- >> personal. >> second of all, i think we failed middle income blue collar voters who feel we no longer understand their life, no longer are fighting daily for them, and they think what we're about are just the social issues and fighting for tax breaks for the wealthy. that's not what we're about, but we sure let that perception happen. >> my dad is a regular republican, not a right winger. he used to say the trouble with my party is they care
about benghazi. she's a consumer of it and therefore that -- this qualifies her to be secretary of state on fox news. i mean i don't know how much more black and white the hypocrisy -- >> stephanie: as you and others have pointed out, the iraq war obviously cost us god knows how much blood and treasury in the final analysis. the benghazi attack, as horrible as it was compared to the iraq war, not even close right? >> right. so condy rice helped initiate a war plus $3 trillion, 4,000 american lives untold number of iraqi dead and susan rice was reacting to a terrorist attack that killed four americans and in the eyes of the republicans eyes of fox news and the eyes of the right wing crazies these are now equal events. it is -- thankfully, the whole thing seems to have petered out. it has been one of the most frustrating and maddening smear campaigns we've seen in awhile. >> stephanie: it really is. a woman of such obvious inelect and capability and it -- >> also mentioned last week, you know, g.o.p. gets absolutely s
at eucerinus.com. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton expected to testify before congress about benghazi situation as early as this week, perhaps. back with me now, the brain trust. dave, matt, angela. thanks for sticking around. folks, what do you think will be the headline the day after secretary clinton testifies? angela, i'm going to start with you. if you wrote for a publication, what would the headline be? >> "hillary 2016." i think hillary is going to knock it out of the box this week with her testimony. she's going back to her old stomping grounds in capitol hill where she's got tons of allies and friends. regardless of the outcome, the reality of the situation is you can never know what actually happened until you collect all of the data and the facts. i think she's going to fiercely defend ambassador rice. i think she's also going to defend her own honor. definitely hillary 2016. >> you also have to wonder how aggressive they are even going to be with regards to questioning secretary clinton as well. >> correct. i totally agree with you. >> dave, what do you think? what's the h
-55-press. and the official report investigation on benghazi is now complete. the report is out. it blames the state garment for what it calls systemic failures across the board on security in libya, not recognizing and realizing how dangerous the country was and not providing enough security for our embassy in tripoli and the consulate in benghazi. they blame the state department. they do not blame susan rice. all right. tha maybe that will close that story once and for all. we will talk about it, take your calls. first, we get the latest todd's news update, lisa ferguson standing buy in los angeles. hey, lisa. good morning. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. let me give you a few more details on that report. it is very critical of the state department. an accountability board spearheaded that investigation. according to those results just made public last night, the department did not use enough seasoned security personnel. instead relying too much on untested local militias. the report also blames officials in washington saying they ignored
, and the state department's report on benghazi. all five programs we err on c- span radio beginning at noon eastern. david gregory will come and our rate ceo, chuck schumer of new york, lindsey gramm of south carolina, and utah congressman jason shave it. at 1:00 p.m., guests include former dea administrator, sarah brady of the gritty center, -- brady center. then host chris wallace sits down with john grasso. he is german of the senate -- chairman of the senate republican committee. cnn's state of the union follows at 3:00 p.m.. candy crowley welcomes south carolina republican representative nick mulvaney, ohio republican congressman steve latourette, and independent senator, joe lieberman of connecticut. at 4:00 p.m., but basin asian tito -- host -- an interview with tim scott, the republican senate delegate. also an appearance by an affleck, founder of the eastern congo and -- eastern congo initiative. these are brought to you as a public service by the networks and c-span. they begin at noon eastern with "meet the press," "this week," state of the union," and "face the nation." you can
on legal issues fast and furious, benghazi, the way you conducted yourself in front of the nation makes us all proud. jeff couldn't be here. he has passed legislation that would make this nation energy independent. that is pretty impressive for somebody that has been in the house for one term and newly elected. tom, you bring to the table problem solving. you're chairman of the county council. you understand your district has got a lot of opportunity. you're the cash cow for the state. all of us are going to myrtle beach one day. that's the american dream to go to myrtle beach and he brings height to the delegation. so welcome. tim, the only advice i can give you is that you got here by being tim scott, not lindsey graham, not jim demint, just keep being tim scott and that will be good for our state. you have a unique opportunity for the conservative cause. you have unique burdens. i want to help you where i can. anything my office can do to help you get started we will do. the only advice i can give you is just keep being the good person you are. the thing about tim, not only is he good a
service. >> do you think there's anything about benghazi that would at all taint her? >> no, i don't. not a thing. no. i mean the benghazi thing, it was a mistake, a terrible thing. we don't have actually the whole story out because the other half of the story is what the cia was doing at the annex. and that part hasn't actually been released. this was an internal look at the state department. and as any good group of people do, look tough at yourself first before you look at the interconnections with the other agencies. someone else has to look at those interconnections because this panel is a panel that secretary clinton actually appointed, former joint chiefs of staff mike mullen, tom pickering, other people like this were on this panel. they looked intensively at the department. and of course you find things wrong when you look at that, and -- but the state department has been under tremendous budgetary pressure for years. and now the challenge -- and one challenge that secretary kerry is going to have is how do you measure the effectiveness of diplomacy versus the risk to your
.n. ambassador susan rice out to smooth things over with this week with republicans after those benghazi talking point. >> exextremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> it didn't work. now their talking points. >> we are significantly troubled. >> i want to say that i'm more troubled today. >> democrats shot back. >> they are not only blaming her for this intelligence report, they are trying to blame her for the actual tragic event. >> i've seen so much crazy stuff in this house could i write a book. >> or make an internet video. >> not be a true god-fearing person and be on a television show like that. >> that's actor angus t. jones, the "two and a half men" star caught slamming his own tv show. >> if you watch "two and a half men," please don't watch "two and a half men." i'm on "two and a half men," and i don't want to be on it. >> he apologized, but still he may get his wish. >> now to just two men, these two men, mano-a-mano in the white house thursday. former rivals on a private lunch date. >> it was an awkward moment when romney looked around and said, so, how much
in benghazi and if so why? >> they did overshadow it and it continues. we had a hearing this week in foreign affairs. my republican colleagues want to continue to focus on it in a way that i think is not constructive at all. the report came out of the state department. the state department accepted responsibility and said that they should have done more. at the same time my republican colleagues also want to cut the very funding that is needed to protect the embassies around the country. so i think it is disingenuous and all about attacking president obama and the way that they torpedos susan rice. i think directing their attacks at her was inappropriate and they are still talking about it. >> democratic congress woman karen bass of california thank you very much and hop haappy holidays. >>> we will hear. a second look at the first lady and the next act for chelsea clinton. you are watching msnbc. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back i

. and this president is committed to just that. but the other topics -- benghazi. the state department said secretary clinton received the report from the review board. can you give us the idea of when you expect the president may receive that and what kind of action the white house may take to prevent another terror event? >> i don't have a timetable for you in terms of that process, when the report moves from the state department. the president has looked forward to the review board to work as he looks forward to the completion of the investigation by the fbi. so it is hard to say what action he will take because we have not seen the reports. >> the fbi is still investigating as well. do you have any sense the last time the president got an update from the fbi as to where their investigation of benghazi stance. also, secretary clinton has been ill obviously and no one would expect to testify right now but is the administration committed to have her testify before she leaves office? >> i would ask the state department about her schedule and her illness that she is dealing with. but i certainly am no
cannot nominate susan rice and not because of the benghazi scandal but because of her previous tenure at state where she doesn't have a good record and her u.n. record is not good. we don't have time to go through the particulars, but i think senator kerry would not only be the policy and political wiser choice. >> everything i've read about ambassador rice, she's imminently qualified for the job. >> you guys can continue this conversation at home right now. thanks to both of you for joining us. >>> the royal line of succession could soon be adding a new name. britain is buzz right now over the news the royal family is about to add another member. ll t in time for christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew.

that community wasn't, and to the extent i talked about foreign policy, i was talking about benghazi rather than cuba. >> last question. you didn't use the word "immigration." it was not in there? >> it came up -- >> a little bit. >> a little bit. it came up in the following way. people wanted to know that the president cared about the issue. they wanted to understand why it hasn't be achieved in his first term. it served, almost in these interviews the same function i view it serving generally that of the threshold issue, and by that i mean, if you're okay on immigration, they listen to the rest of it. if you're not okay on immigration, they are not going to listen to the rest of it, which, i think, is part of, i don't think it's fully the problem republicans have, but it's part of it, receivers a little, again, in these antedoal evidence derived from interviews that it was an issue, but it was almost a you're okay on this issue, let's talk about the rest of it. >> fascinating, great. same question. what did you do on your autumn vacation? now, i know you organized an independent expenditure, s
if obama chooses her as his next secretary of state. as we've seen since the benghazi attack, mccain is one of rice's harshest critics. the two met late last month along with other senators to discuss rice's television appearances during the aftermath of those september 11th attacks in libya. rice hoped to put mccain's fears at ease but he came out of the meetings saying he only had more questions than when he went in. mccain spokesman says he will seek a spot on the international affairs panel which oversees the state department. republicans have said they would rather see john kerry as circumstance -- secretary of state over susan rice. hillary clinton is still polling very well after her stint with the state department and democrats are practically begging to see her in 2016. according to the latest abc news, "washington post" poll, 57% of people say they would support her run. although abc is reporting today she said she'll most likely devote her time to her husband clinton's foundation to focus on women and girls wo
in benghazi next week. secretary of state, hillary clinton, testified before the house florida affairs committee. we'll have that live on the c-span networks and c-span.org. here's a look at the prime time programming across the c-span networks. >> i've been on that bus. they are just as good as gold. >> all of us, i think, in the country were starting to people coming out and talking about their experience, this phenomena, that so many of us experienced in one way or another and had no words for other than adolescence, other than growing up. we're finally, people were starting to stand back and say, hold on, this is not a normal part of growing up. this is not a right of passage. there was a moment where there's a possibility for change, and director lee and i decided to start the film out of that feeling that voices were bubbling up, coming up to the surface to say that this is not something we can accept anymore as a normal part of the culture. >> the filmmaker lowen gathered essays and perm stories together in "bully," and hear more saturday night at 10 on "afterwords" and more boo
't -- and to the extent i was talking about foreign policy, i was talking about benghazi rather than cuba. >> last question, you didn't use the word immigration. immigration was not in that -- >> it came up a little, it came up -- >> a little bit. >> it came up a little bit, and it came up in the following way, um, people wanted to know that the president cared about the issue. they wanted to understand why it hadn't been achieved in his first term. um, it served almost in these interviews the same function that i view it serving generally, which is that of of a threshold issue. and by that i mean if you're okay on immigration, they'll listen to the rest of it. if you're not okay on immigration, they're not going to listen to the rest of of it. which i think is part of -- i don't think it's fully the problem republicans have right now with latinos, but it's part of. so it served a little bit, again, in this kind of anecdotal evidence derived from interviews that it was an issue, but it was almost a you're okay on this issue, let's talk about the rest of it. >> fascinating. great. okay, alfonso, sa
